Contingency Plan needed if/when DailyPaul site is closed by enemies to the cause.

I tried to log onto this site a half hour ago and was met with a white page that stated this site was unavailable. Not a good feeling. It rather suddenly reminded me how much we depend on this site for the passage of information. I think an alternative plan (alternate site - Mass e-mail post, etc) should be in place ASAP.

Hey OP, can you give this a lift? I think it's important and got left off at 3am in spite of good response.

Twitter? @dailypaul

There is a Daily Paul Twitter account @dailypaul
http://twitter.com/#!/dailypaul

And the RSS "Feed"...

I believe both would be available if the web site were down.

Kick in to Webmaster and set up a hotline

Have it in place. Activate it fully in case he goes down.. or at least create a recording.

yes but

I'm thinking more of a crash than privacy.

I wouldn’t worry about the “enemies”

I wouldn’t worry about the “enemies” closing down this site. The mix of gold, silver, “sound money”, “free markets”, and “no war” are a welcomed addition to the traditional political spectrum. Now everyone has a seat inside the cage.

A couple of years ago we had a backup plan....

I remember the alternate was established because we were receiving a lot of attacks. I don't remember the backup site now and it would be a good idea to post it or have a contingency plan.

Hackers often run a test

and if this site being down had some explanation other than innocent then those perps are probably feeling pretty good about themselves right now thinking they could close this site whenever they want. They have to be shown by us that it won't make a lick of difference.

Now it's about the Constitution and the fight to defend it.

Same thing

Around precisely the same time!

Remember to check FB page as well. It was up!

Email

Nystrom has all our email addresses. In the event of this site being shut down please register a new site and email all of us the link.

should have domains ready

with backups ready in place in case of outage. All can be operational fairly quickly if the site does go down. Actually I think a diffuse system with multiple websites RIGHT NOW would not be a bad idea. It would be harder to coordinate multiple massive attacks if we have sister sites with exactly the same information UP and running, and the people here aware of it. That way the flow of information can never be stopped all at once, or at least make it incredibly difficult to go after the network.

Exactly!

Great ideas.

Now it's about the Constitution and the fight to defend it.

My thoughts exactly!

Had the same thing happen to me yesterday! The neo-con communists within both parties are trying their best to stop free speech and thought in this country!

We need a back-up plan, before it’s too late!

all good ideas

but the new good ideas need to be spread and understood. (just like Robert's Rules) Then they become effective.

Now it's about the Constitution and the fight to defend it.

Idea...

Take it to the streets. And never ever forget the words of Dr Paul...

I wouldn't worry

I'm not asking here to know what it is but he has my mail

and I would feel a lot better if he sent me a response. HighRoad-takers would want to include all the known trolls in that mail-out but that would be our undoing.

Now it's about the Constitution and the fight to defend it.

F**k the high road.

I'm in this to win. We have no obligation to them and if sh*t hits the fan I'm not in favor of making it easier on the opposition.

Guess I'm just a d*ck. ;)

Taking the high road

With all due respect, if we ARE in to win, I suggest we stick to taking the high road - with language, too, it would be helpful. Ron Paul is not responsible for who his supporters are, but it does reflect on him. The last thing we should wish to do is allow zeal to win to end up hurting his cause, especially now that Santorum supporters will need to make a choice of someone else and a longtime DP'er was able to connect with Daystar, posting an open letter here from an influential producer.
